Traver Abstract to be honored

Tarver Abstract Company of Liberty will receive a prestigious Texas Treasure Business Award from the Texas Historical Commission a week from Thursday, June 16, 4:30 p.m.The event includes a marker dedication for “Commercial Corner” honoring the history of the site at the corner of Mainand Sam Houston Streets. The public is invited.The Texas Treasure Business Award program pays tribute to businesses that have provided employment opportunities and support to the state’s economy for 50 years or more. Created in 2005 through state legislation, the program recognizes well-established Texas businesses and their exceptional historical contributions to the state’s economic growth and prosperity. According to information from Liberty County Historical Commission Chair Linda Jamison, back in 1903, Thomas Carey Tarver purchased a small title plant operated by Cameron and Swilley, local land agents. Thus began the long history of Tarver Abstract Company in Liberty and Liberty County. The title company was owned by various family members and operated at several locations in Libertybefore moving to its present location at 400 Main Street. Today, it is owned and managed by businessman Charles McGuire. In addition to the business award, the Liberty County Historical Commission will officially mark 400 Main, the original site of “Commercial Corner”, which played an important role in the economic development of Liberty. German immigrant Henry Steusoff opened a dry goods store in 1866 and a grocery store in 1899 in this block. In 1896, the new two story Joseph Riviere building was built using brick from the old courthouse. It housed professional offices, merchants and a telephone company.  A devastating fire in 1909 destroyed the entire block just to the south, including Steusoff Pharmacy, which relocated to the Riviere building in 1913. It operated there until 1931 when the building was razed to construct First Liberty National Bank. In 1960, the bank sold the property to LibertyCountySavings & Loan, and in 1992, the long established Tarver Abstract Company became the owner of this significant business site. Tarver Abstract owner Charles McGuire is the great-grandson of Henry Steusoff. The community is invited to the event that also includes a maker dedication for Commercial Corner honoring the history of that location at Main and Sam Houston Streets.
